Check Your State Pension

Check your State Pension

Use this service to find out:

  • how much State Pension you could get (this amount is also known as your State Pension forecast) 

  • when you can get it 

  • how to increase it, if you can 

The State Pension age is under review and may change in the future.

You cannot use this service if you are already getting your State Pension or if you have delayed (deferred) claiming it.

Other ways to check

If you reach your State Pension age in more than 30 days, call the Future Pension Centre and ask for a statement. 

You can also fill in the BR19 application form and send it in the post. 

You will get your statement within ten working days.

If you are already getting your State Pension or have delayed claiming it

To get information about your State Pension, contact the Pension Service if you are in the UK or the International Pension Centre if you live abroad.
